Gardening Scotland: Volunteers Required

Friday 03 June 2016

Those lovely people from REMIN (of Rock Dust fame) require volunteers during the Gardening Scotland event from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th June.

Jennifer (of REMIN) says - "As well as talking to visitors to the stand there will be stints “on the trailers”. The idea is to have a trailer at both North and West Car Parks and to have someone on these at all times, or at least for the afternoons. When bags of rock dust or compost are sold at the stand the buyers are given a ticket which they take to their cars, then take their car to one of the two trailers where they are loaded up with their rock dust and or compost.

"Trailer stints could be just afternoons as and if somebody wants to take their rock dust away in the morning somebody can walk with them to the trailer and load them up and then come back to the stand – so that there are not spells sitting on the trailer with nothing happening.

"So – in return for
(b) one free 20kg bag of REMIN volcanic rock dust (or 2 x 10kg bags)
(c) free REMIN polo shirt
(d) free car parking

each volunteer does 5 hours = 3 hours on stand and 2 hours on trailer, in busy period ie 11am to 5pm. As show is open for 7 hours each day this will factor in time for lunch and to get around the show themselves."

If you would like to volunteer for a day out at the show, please contact jennifer.
